The film, shot in secret within the Hasidic Community in Borough Park, Brooklyn by Weinstein over the course of two years. The film is roughly based on the real life of actor Menashe Lustig, and sheds unusual light into this notoriously private community. A warm, life affirming look at the universal bonds between father and son, Menashe follows a loving but hapless single father as he tries to maintain custody of his son in a tradition-bound culture that requires a mother present in every home.
